While Touken Ranbu turned Japanese swords into anthropomorphic men, another new anime is turning rice crops into bishounen, and it is called Love Kome -We Love Rice-. Love Live!’s Hanayo, rejoice!
Love Kome -We Love Rice- follows five bishounen rice boys, all of whom have names inspired by types of Japanese rice, like Hikari Hino and Nishiki Sasa.
The anime is slated to premiere in April 2017, and promises to let audiences “rediscover the virtues of rice”, which we Asians basically eat every single day… unless you’re on a strict diet of course.
